Matt Hancock (Secretary of State for Health and Social Care) has it too. Westminster has become a cluster! Are they both sick because Matt touched his Johnson and Boris did a Hancock shuffle?

They risked the international communities health. Come to japan, it’s safe. When they knew it wasn’t. That IMO is unforgivable.

And if you’re infected with COVID-19, take your little buddy with you whereever you go, spread it around. Share the joy. SERIOUSLY?? Camper van hire has been banned in so many countries right now... WAKE UP JAPAN!

Posted in: It is really difficult to identify every case, because so many infections are mild. I would expect a gradual increase in cases in Japan because of silent transmission in the community. See in context

If ANYONE doubts what can happen, if ANYONE thinks life is normal, look at Lombardy, Italy. That’s what can happen. FOLLOW the common sense approach. Wash your hands. Keep away from large crowds. Wear a mask to nullify face touching.

Posted in: UK ramps up virus fight: no pubs, 12-week isolation for some See in context

No pubs, where there are no children, but school OK? Children having shown to be asymptomatic, so can give it each other, then spread to people who will develop symptoms. And the herd immunity, through no control? Very risky play by Cummings and co.

Japan (Although NOT testing -- as Abe trying to save Olympics), about a month along the line of the UK. So, UK: Wash your hands, don’t touch your face, keep social distancing. Common sense approach, just as flu.

Some various opinions on proposed (but now changing?) UK approach:

With such an obviously Canadian name I don’t think there’s any need to stipulate that the drug smuggler Tateyama Yoshiya is not a Japanese national. Aye.

Hilarious, look where they ar having their meeting. At an expensive Chinese restaurant going by the lazy Susan table. What about working single parents with no access to extended family support? It must be an absolute nightmare. The pressure to leave your child at home, alone.

This is a major Wag the Dog moment and trump is incredibly dangerous to the US and peace. He must be removed from office ASAP.

That’s clever. The Speaker will not send the Articles of Impeachment UNTIL the Senate states it’s rules of process. Brilliant. As there it will will sit, Trump impeached but NOT acquitted. Ha!

Every international typhoon watch organisation, including JTWC, and the US Navy have all called it a typhoon, so, there we go. @UK, thanks for the details. Interesting. But some people don’t know what tropical cyclone is!

Posted in: Japan's exports drop for 7th straight month as China-U.S. trade war takes toll See in context

@Becu: A majority of Japanese do not like or support either Abe or the LDP, a majority of those who vote do, a very different and important distinction. Yet, with these kind of deliveries by the ruling class, even the old faithful will begin to twitch. Foreign influence, policy and money has shaped Japan since GHQ took over, from the constitution, to the politics. The LDP was heavily financed and supported by the CIA, so “foreigners” have not just “known better” but actually “acted”.

An entire species is under threat for the arrogant appeasement of just a few, mostly, men. Japan, stand up and tell them NO.

Heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice when they needn’t have if the society in whim they lived protected them as it should. Rest in peace? No, rest in anger, I hope their deaths haunt the NRA, the free reign gun tooting NRA. Shame on them.
